Holiday Gift Ideas!

Here’s my list of environmentally conscious gift ideas for the holidays.

1. Buy someone a tree.

2. Give out reusable shopping bags.

You can find them at Shaw’s for one or two dollars.
I like the nylon Baggu bags. $22 for three (yikes!)

Or if you’re feeling creative, bike to a craft store and find blank canvas bags to decorate yourself.

3. Reusable Bottles/Cups

Discourage the use of water bottles and paper coffee cups…

Nalgen (Hard plastic)

Kleen Kanteen (Aluminum)

4. Donate to a charity in someones name.
